Jack-In-The-Can by RNL

The contest in which design teams create structures with canned food, has returned to the Westfield Fashion Square in Sherman Oaks, and will be on display through October 15th.

Taking Warhol’s soup can to a whole new level; CANstruction produced by the Society for Design Administration, and organized by the offices of State Senator Jack Scott & Assemblyman Mike Feuer, gathers together L.A. architects & designers to create creative displays, and raise awareness about hunger. The competitions have been held in over 45 cities in the U.S. and Canada including New York, Las Vegas, and San Diego to name a few.
